For Tech Week 2021 ESERO Ireland are offering you the opportunity to explore the technology that shows the night sky and discover where the planets are right now! Ireland has a long history of astronomy, but not the clearest skies in the world…. Use planetarium software to explore the skies, see the sunrise, the changing appearance of the Moon, and more. With MTU Blackrock Castle Observatory’s resident Performance Astronomer as your guide, you’re in good hands on this journey through the stars.
Suitable for all ages of primary students, delivered remotely over Zoom. Register your class (and feel free to invite other similar age classes from your school).
